House Republicans are seeking to balance the federal budget within 10 years by making significant spending cuts, but they have not yet provided a plan showing how they will achieve this. Russell Vought, former head of the Office of Management and Budget under former President Donald Trump and current leader of conservative think tank the Center for Renewing America, has emerged as a leading intellectual in the GOP on budgetary matters. Vought has proposed a 104-page memo outlining potential spending cuts across virtually every federal agency that would slash spending while leaving major social welfare programs untouched.

In a 104-page memo, Vought laid out his plan for potential spending cuts. In the memo, which is reported by the Post to mention the word ‘woke’ a total of 77 times, Vought said:

“America cannot be saved unless the current grip of woke and weaponized government is broken,”

“That is the central and immediate threat facing the country — the one that all our statesmen must rise tall to vanquish. The battle cannot wait. However, this woke and weaponized regime requires the resources of taxpayers to flourish and can be starved in order to dismantle it.”

Vought would also tell the Post:

“I’m tired of this focus on Social Security and Medicare, as if you’re climbing a mountain and can’t make any progress on that mountain until you go to the eagle’s nest on the top,”

“You take these cuts to the American people, and you win.”

The plan includes massive reductions in federal programs, many of which serve lower-income households, and targets programs that Vought describes as “woke” or “weaponized.” Democrats and the media have argued that the plan is unrealistic and cannot provide a path to a balanced budget, as it assumes rapid economic growth will occur as government spending is slashed, which is not likely.

Democrats and the media have questioned how much money can really be saved by targeting “wokeness,” however, many can look at government spending and understand that funding endless diversity and LGBTQ political movements with taxpayer funds is not a way to get government spending in order, and in part, targeting ‘wokeness’ may be a part of the equation.

  1. I recently received my 3rd online check for $21,850 which I won by doing a super simple and easy job online. wq430 This online business is amazing and the regular acquisitions that come from it are amazing. Online according to the subtleties referenced

  2. I’m making over $13k a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. For more details check this article..

  3. We really need to wake up to some basic facts of life. One is that a fiat-money, interest-bearing monetary system with fractional-reserve banking is not the only form of value exchange that there is – and is showing that it is at the end of its functional life. Another is that life as we know it, in this 3D realm, is not the be-all and end-all of existence; that there is Plan in and Purpose to life beyond just in and for itself only. Proof of that exists in all of the studies, books, videos extant in our time of the phenomenon of reincarnation; which indicates that there is, indeed, a part of ‘us’ that we call a soul – a spark of divinity – that lives on after the death of the physical vessel that we inhabit for a time of education. Not to get here into the details of that subject. Just to mention that we should be living as though the fact of a larger reality than this 3D realm (this classroom for ‘spiritual beings having a human experience’) were true, and not as though it were not, as we are doing, largely, at present. Including as regards our sharing of goods and services with one another, as fellow pilgrims on The Path.
    Time for a fundamental change in our social structures, based on awakening to our true , underlying natures.
